    I'd start at 5mL/gal and taste. I'd also give the keg a good shake and a day or so to
    homogenize. I had good luck with this in a gose that had some existing tartness but not where I
    wanted it. You can...

    As for damage mitigation, I do agree that Midwest could do a better job communicating, even if
    it is just to say: "Hey, we're still monitoring our systems. We still have not found any
    security issues....

    I had fraudulent charges on my debit card with similar,,
    Gamestop, gaming websites--during the same time period. I have never shopped online with
    Midwest. So that's ano...

    1) We picked a year as the timeframe just from doing some cursory reading about this strain,
    but could the Brett finish sooner? Would we check with a hydrometer (check for stable gravity

    If you're interested in this idea, I'd definitely check out a Berliner Weisse. Mine is 70/30
    pilsner/wheat, no boil. Not a single of the 12 score sheets I got from competitions, including
    NHC regional...

    Competitions don't care about the age, just how tasty and close to style the beer is. That
    Flanders Red I entered was close to 2 years old but I've also entered beer that were less than
    a month old.

    Thanks for the tidbit about the runner up best of show. I got my score sheets today and while I
    think the BW was legit, the Flander's Red was a bit of a gimme. Only 5 beers in the sour ale
    category an...

    Eh, no worries Matt. I stumbled across your rant after searching for March Mashness results and
    it gave me a healthy chuckle.

    Do you get much conversion with water and grain mixed at 100F to give the lacto sugars to
    eat?The process I'm describing is basically what Papizan, Jamil, and BYO is calling sour
    mashing, whether that...
